Timber home is sustainable design blueprint

An eco-friendly timber home provides a blueprint for sustainable construction according to its designers.

Architecture studio Juri Troy has designed this eco-friendly timber house as a family home in rural Austria.

House Under the Oaks is supported by six columns as it projects out from a hilltop, in the countryside west of Vienna.

Photovoltaic panels on the roof and a ground-source heat pump provide the wooden building with an ecological source of energy, while natural insulation keeps in the warmth.

“The whole structure was done in prefabricated timber with all ecological wood with wool insulation of up to 60 centimetres,” said the architects. “It is a new prototype for affordable living on minimal energy in Austria.”
